For Looptworks, being a Certified B Corp means learning alongside other like-minded people. It means substantiating values with action.
For consumers and businesses alike, the idea of a B Corporation is something to get behind: ethical standards that keep workers and the environment from harmful, exploitative practices? Well that sounds great!

It is no secret that most of us spend too long staring at our screens: scrolling aimlessly through social media feeds, ogling at things we will likely never buy and, finally, ending up once more on a “funniest cats compilation” with little knowledge of how we got there. It is difficult to live in this digital age without our phones, laptops and tablets – but there is hope! Instead of perusing the web for useless content, why not spend your screen time doing something that will actively help you, those around you and the planet, too? There are plenty of “green” apps designed to cut your carbon, source ethical products, sell or swap within your community, or help you reduce your footprint on the earth. Here is a round-up of some of our favorites.

It can be completely daunting knowing where to begin lessening your impact on the planet. What to focus on first? Plastic pollution or carbon emissions? Can I only buy locally-made products? Will I even have an impact as just one person?

The amount we buy has gone up, while the number of times we use a product has gone down. This is contributing to waste and overuse of earth's resources in a big way.
But we can choose to be more conscious about how we consume. So as we head into the holiday season and far, far beyond, we hope you'll choose to waste less, choose to wear and use something longer, choose to take better care of our clothes and belongings, and choose better quality products from the beginning.

After numerous shows, Bon Iver was left with excess merch from previous tours. But they didn't want it to go to waste, so they turned to Looptworks.

For over 13 years, Girls Inc. of the Pacific Northwest has hosted an annual fundraising gala, "Power of the Purse," featuring handbags and purses made from local designers. As part of the event, each unique piece is auctioned off in the end with all proceeds going directly to Girls Inc..
As a part of this years POP, Looptworks joined forces again to create another bag. Each purse is typically assigned to a single celeb in Portland, but we were chosen as designers for this year’s Traveling Purse, a bag that will travel every week to a different local celebrity.
